state fair of texas 2021 announcement

The State Fair of Texas has announced that thanks to the effectiveness of vaccines and Texans getting vaccinated against COVID-19 they will return to an in-person event this year.

In what could be the ultimate exclamation mark for Texans after over a year of pandemic-driven worry, event cancellations, and business closures – The State Fair of Texas has announced a full return.

This year’s theme for the annual fair is “Howdy, Folks!” a theme that quickly encompasses everything the State Fair stands for – Texans being together in a welcoming environment – and moving away from those virtual events.

“This year’s commemorative theme art encompasses the foundation of what the Fair is all about – being together. None of us could have predicted all that the COVID-19 pandemic would bring with it, but we feel so grateful to carry on the State Fair’s 135-year history and welcome everyone back with a warm, ‘Howdy, Folks!,’ this year.” – Mitchell Glieber, State Fair of Texas president

The Fair will open on September 24th and run through October 17th. Season Pass tickets are on sale now so you can start planning your trip. Daily admission tickets go on sale September 9th.
